Tuesday 7 June 2016
6.30pm - 7.30pm
The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL
£70 + VAT | 1.0 CPD

Wilberforce Chambers invites you to a series of lectures by senior practitioners on technical topics of particular interest to non-contentious pensions lawyers. Wilberforce Chambers has a well-established reputation in the field of pensions law, due in large part to the late Edward Nugee QC, to whose memory these lectures are dedicated. The fields to be covered are members’ rights to information, certain complexities in the moral hazard regime, challenges relating to the PPF and trustees’ duties, and DB schemes on the decline curve.

The first lecture in our series is:

Members’ rights to information: data protection and disclosure issues for pension schemes

  • Data Protection Act 1998: issues raised by Dawson-Damer v Taylor Wessing [2016] 1 WLR 28
  • Access to the trustees’ legal advice
  • Confidentiality and trustee decision-making
  • Other rights to obtain information

Speakers:

Paul Newman QC and Edward Sawyer

Cost:
£70 + VAT = £84.00 per lecture, or a discounted rate of £250 + VAT = £300 for all four lectures.
